Think you know our world? Show off and brush up on your geographical skills with World Quiz.
World Quiz asks you to locate world cities on the map, and your score depends on how close your guess is.
World Quiz uses beautiful Earth satellite imagery from NASA, so it's not only fun to play, it also looks stunning!
This is just a great start. As it stands, this feels like an app for a geography buff. For us average mortals, there should be an option to only have to find the country. Also, the scoring never gets reset, it seems. I doubt I'll ever get a positive score, especially since it does not show you the location of cities you've missed badly. Also, like another review suggested, there should be an option to turn on state and country boundaries. Asides from that, the map of the world is simply beautiful. The interface works like a charm as well-- with a flick of your finder you can shoot from one end of the world to the other. I really would love to see an update. If at least some of the needed changes were made, I'd pay for this.
Very fun app, especially for being free of charge. It has a huge amount of cities from all over the world and is very accurate on where they are located. a few things though 1) a way to zoom in and out 2) a way to reset score 3) when you get one wrong, you should be taken to the correct location. Right now it just has a dot on the screen. When you are nowhere near the location, you can't see the dot and still have no idea where the city is. If you hadn't noticed, this is my biggest gripe with the app. All in all though, very fun an educational.
Worth the download
The app is amazing and has spurred numerous games between our friends. Two additions that would make it perfect.
1) Ability to find and see the actual location of a place you incorrectly identified, right after guessing.
2) Fix the location of Addis Ababa, Ethopia. This is incorrect and cost me $20 because of a bet. I put my faith in you as the developer to have all locations correct and this one is not.
Other than that I love the app!
